Catch The 'Hitman' Elusive Targets Tomorrow, On Friday The 13th

If you need a tougher challenge in the new Hitman game, the team at IO Interactive has something coming your way in the form of Elusive Targets. This is yet another portion of the studio’s “live content” to keep players busy in the game between new levels.

These Elusive Targets seem to be the most difficult targets yet in the franchise. For one thing, they’re available in the game only for a limited time. With this first target, you’ll have 48 hours to take them out, but you’ll have to find the target first. Intel is limited, and on top of that, they’re not visible on the game’s mini-map or Agent 47’s Instinct mode. You’ll have to use your naked eyes.

You’ll also need to plan your attack beforehand, because you can make only one attempt on the Elusive Target. If you die, fail to take out the target, or run out of time, that’s it--they're gone forever.

If you think you’re up for the challenge, you can try your hand at the new game mode starting tomorrow, which coincidentally is Friday the 13th. Future Elusive Targets will be announced in various places online, such as the game’s forums or social media.

Elusive Targets were supposed to come out a week after the game’s launch, but for some reason, the developers decided to hold off on the feature until now. Nevertheless, players will finally have another way to show off their assassination skills. As the press release stated, “bonne chance (good luck)” to all the players.

    Well, if the so-called "Chapter 1" would be 8-10 hours long, full of rich content, levels and alternate paths/endings/methods/feels then sure, $60 would probably cover it. But I kinda doubt it lasts that long. A quick Google search says that it lasts about 3 hours.

    Although I quite agree that the launch was far from perfect and they are late on the content promised right now all of the major technical issues are solved and I am immensely enjoying my time with the new Hitman game. But of course I have only bought it recently, because I was waiting for them to solve all those terrible technical problems the game had on release.
